Wargrave to Pangbourne

Miles 8.5 locks 4
One thing about missing an overnight stop at Henley is that it puts all the usual travelling timing out of kilter. We passed through Sonning a lot earlier than we have in the past and were rewarded with the light on the bridge being almost perfect for a good photograph. It looks good on the PC screen so I am hopeful that I will be able to get a good print when I get home. We stopped at Tesco at Reading and had lunch after shopping and then went over to Better Boats to top up with diesel. I went for quick look at the chandlers but found a cross between a charity shop and a second hand shop instead. At least the diesel was a very good price for the Thames at least 30p per litre than that being asked at the marinas near Windsor.
Still meeting unusual craft these two seemed to be having a sponsored pedalo cruise down the river they had 3 backup boats with them. We have moored on the National Trust meadow at Pangbourne, something that is also a product of a different start point. we even had time to have a snooze before walking to town to have a look around.

They have always been one of the best prices on the Thames for diesel
